Kindle 1 and audio books?

It's almost certainly been covered but my mind is a muddle (I just got a very longed for job and will be moving). Can we handle any audio book? Does it come by Whisper Net? Do I need to load it on my PC and then my Kindle?

Should I just take a deep breath and have a glass of wine?

Will you come pack my stuff?

Krisk, this is from your Kindle users guide downloaded on your Kindle

8.4 Audiobooks and Music
There are two types of materials you can listen to on Kindle. You can purchase, transfer, and play
audiobooks from Audible.com, and you can transfer MP3 files to Kindle to play as background music
while you read.
Audiobooks from Audible.com
Kindle supports the thousands of audiobooks available through Audible.com. You can purchase and
download one or more of these books through your Windows-based computer using AudibleManager
software supplied by Audible or iTunes on your Macintosh. You can then transfer these books to your
Kindle over USB or using an SD memory card, and listen to them on your Kindle.
Audiobook Formats for Kindle
Audible offers four versions of its audiobook format. Kindle is compatible with formats 2, 3, and 4.
Format 1 and audiobooks provided from other sources are not supported.
Activation, Purchase, Download, and Transfer
You must have access to a Windows-based computer running the latest AudibleManager to activate
your Kindle. To activate for use with Audible content, follow these steps. :
Using a Windows-based computer, go to Audible.com at
http://www.audible.com/kindle.
1.
2. If you are not already an Audible customer, follow the prompts to create your Audible account.
3. Download and install the latest AudibleManager software.
4. Launch AudibleManager and connect your Kindle.
Activate your Kindle using the Activate... command under Devices in AudibleManager. This
will authorize your Kindle to play the audiobooks you purchase at Audible.com.
5.
Tip: If you are a Macintosh user, you need to connect your Kindle to a Windows-based computer
running AudibleManager to authorize your Kindle. You may be able to authorize your Kindle running
AudibleManager on Windows on your Macintosh if you have your Macintosh configured to run
Windows. Once authorized with your Audible credentials, you can then use Audible files downloaded
through AudibleManager under Windows or iTunes by copying them to your Kindle.
Once you have activated your Kindle, you can purchase and transfer files using the AudibleManager
software. If you are a Macintosh user, you will need to copy Audible content in your iTunes library........

The Kindle has a very nice audiobook player interface. You can also use it to play podcasts and other MP3 format audiobooks. (Music, too, for that matter.)

LOL - good luck with that. I still have scars from a cat washing many years ago.

I forgot I had left this post laying about! I decided I would take some of the non-keeper pbooks to a local used bookstore where I have a bunch of credit and buy used audio books. No sense filling up the kindle with them. They are for the drive anyway.

19 days and counting!
